The Hoemance Book Club’s November 2022 Read: The Romantic Agenda by Claire Kann

Hey everyone, welcome or welcome back to my blog! Back in 2021 Rebecca and I started The Hoemance Book Club and we’ve absolutely loved discussing romance books with our book club every month with everyone on our Discord! We’ve read so many exciting romances lately and we can’t to read some new favourites this year too!

Earlier this year we read some real bangers like Weather Girl, Book Lovers and Fake It Till You Bake It and last month we read Only When It’s Us by Chloe Liese. For the month of November, our book club read is The Romantic Agenda by Claire Kann!

Find out more about this month’s book here β†“  & find our catalogue of past books here.

book recommendations for each enneagram type | all rhodes lead here, the foxhole court, normal people…

Hey everyone, welcome to or welcome back to my blog! It’s been a hot minute since I recommended some books here on my blog so I figured what better time than now? I was originally going to do recs directed at each enneagram but then I decided to recommend books based on characters with their enneagram type instead!* I’ve tried to put a broad range of books on here and to categorise the characters myself (some of these I haven’t read in quite a while!) so I’m curious to see how my guesses might compare to yours!

Fun fact, I’m a 6w9 with some type 4 traits too. I’d be really curious to know if you read a lot of books with characters who have a similar enneagram to you or if you read a wide selection of personality types in the books you pick up! I’ve found, in romances in particular that male love interests (in the books I’ve been picking up) have a lot of type 6 and 8 traits. I also tend not to read a lot of books with type 9 characters as main characters.

*Also please keep in mind that a lot of this is just me guessing enneagram numbers and wings so it’s totally okay for you to have a different opinion/ view of that character!

*another* book haul // i bought too many books & now there’s no space on my shelves πŸ˜«πŸ™ˆπŸ“š

Hey everyone, welcome to or welcome back to my blog! If you saw me post a book haul literally last week, no you didn’t because it’s time for a new book haul! I was in the city a few days ago and I figured while I was there I’d go into a few of the bookstore staples in my state and then somehow (no idea how bc this is in no way my fault…) I walked out with seven books. I’m honestly so in love with all of these covers and I’m super excited to read them all so don’t be surprised if they pop up in tbrs and wrap ups sooner than later!

Over on my book club’s discord, we’re doing a Riordanverse read-along where every month we read a Rick Riordan book (in series order) starting with The Lightning Thief! We’ll also be discussing the show when it comes out! So, if you’re a Rick Riordan fan or you want to get into his books we’ll be starting from the very beginning over on Discord and I can’t wait to chat with you all, especially since I haven’t read all of the books so I’ll be going in blind for some of his books too which I’m really excited about!

All the books i’ve hauled recently! πŸ“šπŸ₯°

Hey everyone, welcome to or welcome back to my blog! I recently went on a day trip to a suburb I definitely don’t spend enough time in, in my state and went to one of my favourite bookstores (The Really Good Bookshop, for any curious Aussies!) I make a point to go a few times a year and I was very much in need of a bookstore binge where I literally just walk around the store for a couple of hours (and I very much mean hours) and just scour the shelves for new books, and I really think I got some bangers. I’m literally so excited about all of these so don’t be surprised if they pop up in future wrap-ups sooner than later!

Okay, it’s officially a new month so I am fully used to my new life schedule and this month I’m working on balancing work and reading while also reminding myself to blog on my days off. I have 15 books on my tbr this month, some for future blog posts I’m hoping to get to and some just for fun! I’ve got some high hopes for my reading this month but I’m really excited to get to every single one of these so I can’t wait to check back in at the end of the month and see which ones I actually read!

SEPTEMBER WRAP UP | i’ve started reading christmas books already???

Hey everyone, welcome to or welcome back to my blog! September was a bit of a bleh month but, I did read some fun books here and there that I really enjoyed and surprisingly I read a few ebooks which definitely made me feel more accomplished! I didn’t read a crazy amount of books this month but I still feel like 8 books is a good amount! I also got really stuck into my book club’s Discord this month and we’ve decided that starting in November we’re going to start a Riordanverse Readalong, reading one Rick Riordan book in how larger Percy Jackson universe per month until we’re up to date. All the channels are already set up so if you feel like chatting with us or reading ahead, you can join the Discord here!
